On Monday, 28th July “Living Eggs” delivered the eggs to the 3/4’s. The program begins today and promises to incorporate a great deal of new learning for us all!

We are watching, listening and waiting patiently for our eggs to hatch over the next few days. We are religiously recording any observations on our ‘Observation Charts’ and looking forward to all the changes that will occur.

We have ten eggs and have placed a red, blue and green spot on three of them  so as to identify the differences that occur between the eggs before they hatch. We are making predictions about which egg will hatch first and why we think that way.

We have worked out a way to live stream our chickens over the internet. Go to the link below and you can see the chickens in their incubator at school… even when you are at home!!

We are very proud of this so please have a look ! This is so exciting! We cannot wait until they hatch!

LIFE CYCLE OF A FROG

Standard

This term we are being scientists and as a class we are inquiring into the life cycles of different animals. We are inquiring into what food chains are and how these are impacted on by the world around them.

We started with the life cycle of the frog. This week in writing we have been exploring this life cycle and we have made a movie about it. We started by writing a story board and then we learned how to create a movie using Photo Story. We worked in groups of three and collaborated together to complete the task.
